New training course - An Introduction to Oral History for Family Historians

An Introduction to Oral History for Family Historians

15th April 2011 at East Midlands Oral History Archive, Leicester
3rd August 2011 at The British Library

This joint British Library/ Oral History Society training course is open to anyone with an interest in using oral history as a tool for family history and research.

An Introduction to Oral History for Family Historians will enable you to:
understand what oral history is and how it can be applied to family research
identify and access existing oral history material in local and national archives, and consider how to use it in your research
be aware of the ethical issues that may arise when conducting oral history interviews with family members
consider how you could leave a record of your own life for future generations of your family
be aware of basic requirements for conducting your own interviews
Places are limited to twelve per day course, and demand is likely to exceed places, so please apply early. Each course is led by a BL/OHS Accredited Trainer
with experience in conducting family research.

For more information on the course please contact Elspeth Millar via email at elspeth.millar@bl.uk for a programme of the day and a booking form, visit the OHS training webpage (http://ohs.org.uk/training/family-historians.php).[/FONT]

Thanks Elspeth for posting that information.

I am sure a number of the FHUK Community will be very interested in this - may be even myself!

There are so many facets to family history / genealogy - not just chasing names all around the internet

This is a "must" course that I wish I had taken when, many years ago, I first started my own family research and "interviewed" (no! Chatted) to my own grandparents when they were alive. I failed dismally and it has cost me so much time with many loads of dead ends! If only I had taken a course like this - it could of saved me loads of time & grief!

All the very best,
Dave
